young men about what it's like to grow up in an environment like this, in a tough neighborhood, in a tough city. and i think that that is exactly why he's not here right now. i think this conversation is going on longer than anticipated, and the white house really said this was his main focus while he was here at the school was to talk to these young men, martin. >> okay. thank you so much, john yang. let's go back to mark glaze. mark, i just want to make the point for our viewers that john yang was just making, and i want to mention a few reports of deaths attributable to gun violence in the last 24 hours. a man outside dallas was shot and killed early this morning. an arkansas woman was killed in her apartment hour later. and on valentine's day a teenager in north carolina was killed while playing around with a shotgun with her brother. it would be wrong of us just to look at today and think that chicago is unique in some way. this is a nationwide problem, isn't it? >> and the point that our mayors make all of the time is that the public pays a lot of attention when there's a mass

love those kind of things because it allows them to have a better environment which to ship their products and for the convenience of the people that work for them. they look for those opportunities. and so i don't know why bill schuster said that, but the fact is that i wish they would really listen to the president and start to trust, give him the benefit of the doubt that he is trying to do every single thing in his power to lift up all americans. no matter where they may live. and help live the best lives they can. >> final question to you, congressman. lindsey graham was asked about chuck hagel's nomination today. here's just a portion of what senator graham said. listen to this. >> and am i supposed to sit on the sidelines and be a good compliant republican and just let this administration not account for what i think is a national security breakdown of monumental proportions? >> when do they finally give up with benghazi? when does that happen, sir? >> i don't know. of course, hillary clinton came before the senate and gave testimony. she was very clear as best she could be

was the king event, but you could find yourself in this country in a lawless environment through a natural disaster or a riot, and the story was about a place called korea town. there are marauding gangs going throughout the area looting and robbing and raping. >> i'm sorry to be corrective, but korea town, we have checked with scholars of the 1992 riots in lasmth and the evidence for marauding gangs of rapists is pretty thin. who is lindsey graham describing here? >> exactly. there's an old and ugly tradition in this country of vilifying and creating these nightmare scenarios of roving basically black young men and brown young men as this violent, crazy criminal element and you have to arm yourself because gangs of them -- >> people like your husband, like your children. >> exactly. >> people like my children. >> exactly. meanwhile, brooklyn is one of the most gentrified communities in this country. places like redhook and places that used to be really impoverished and difficult areas are becoming quite gentrified and the people who live there are more yuppies, but even if they st

policy, immigration, the environment, everything basically, but his lead on foreign policy is a staggering 14 points. what makes republicans think this is a good thing to have a fight over? >> right. up until recently everybody said, look, politics stops at the water's edge, and that hasn't been the case for the last couple years with this republican party. but it turns out that it wasn't necessarily that both parties followed that axiom because they were being nice about it. it turns out that it's incredibly bad politics to challenge your sitting president overseas. and, you know, this benghazi thing has not worked out for the republican party at all. they tried effectively to make it the biggest issue of the presidential campaign in the last several weeks, and people just didn't buy into it. what they saw is a tragedy. something that was -- if it could have been prevented, it should have been prevented, but they weren't going to start pointing blame and ask for the resignations of hillary clinton and throw barack obama out of office. >> right. >> and the idea that you'd be abl

environment. it is hard to move big legislation. it's hard to move a budget. >> yes. >> it's hard to move anything. so i can understand the appeal to that. but i do go back to what the president said in the moving moments in the state of the union which is that the people hurt by these tragedies deserve a vote, and so whether it is one package or a bunch of individual statutory fixes, there should be an up or down vote in both houses of congress on every issue. in the house we have the problem of leading from behind. a speaker of the house, an important job, in line for the presidency, but we have john boehner announcing that he doesn't think his job is to do anything or lead on anything or pass anything until the senate -- i guess that's news to republicans who want a strong leader, it seems weak to me on this issue and others. and then in the senate, the highest obstruction rate, closure votes on the filibuster, of any presidency in american history. so i hope the president gets back out on the stump, out on the road -- >> you're pushing for the whole lot. >> it's clear if you're a
